Karachi, March 13: Ali Zafar has said that his latest film 'Total Siyapaa' is a comedy with a cause.
The 33-year-old actor said that he has done some global projects where his character is based abroad, but he personally thinks it's a coincident that his character is from Pakistan in E. Niwas' film, the Express Tribune reported.
He said that the reason behind doing 'Total Siyapaa' was simply because the film deals with much more than a romance between a Pakistani boy and an Indian girl and he felt that the story looked towards addressing the generalized perception that Indians have of Pakistanis, and vice versa.
The 'Chashme Buddoor' star said that he feels this film is important for all Pakistanis to watch due to the fact that this is the first time a film with makers and writers from Bollywood can help break a certain perception of Pakistanis.
Zafar added that being a Pakistani, he wouldn't like to be stereotyped like his character in the film when he goes to meet the girl's family and that in the global age, it is advisable to co-exist peacefully with not just our neighbors, but all members of the international community. (ANI)
